Another Large Barbie House

Well Lexi's Barbie Doll house is finally finished! My husband Randy built another house I'm truly glad that this one didn't fall on the floor, I don't think poor Lexi could have handled another delay in the building process. She would walk into the garage and say "Tio Randy this is my house" I guess she wanted to make it clear that he wasn't going to sell this one out from under her!!


Barbie doll house pattern now available click here to visit the blog post with more info.

My husband is great with wood but not so great with color, painting and decorating. So that was my job. There was a lot of painting, and taping off and repainting....


Then I decided to use the cardboard images from the Barbie doll furniture packaging. I carefully cut out the windows, some tile from the bathroom set, the dressers, and the china hutch and clock from the dinning room set.


And then with my trusty E6000 glue I glued them to the walls.

Top bedroom:


Bathroom (I loved this bathroom set so much I didn't let my husband carve out the toilet, tub and his little toilet paper like before, There was a large argument about it, but like all good me he gave up).


2nd floor bedroom:


Kitchen (I did let him carve out the Kitchen Appliances, I was running short on cash).


Living Room (neither Toy's R Us nor Target had a living room set, I looked online and it was $70, wow! So I had to borrow the living room set from my daughter Stephanie's Doll house)


Look out the window. Never in a million years could I have planned for the kitten to peek into the window. I didn't eve notice it until I edited the photo.

So Lexi is now enjoying her Barbie Doll house. Her little brother helps her, and she needs a stool to play on the 3rd floor. She will grow into it. My daughter Stephanie at one point had over 20 Barbies and played with the house until I finally took it away at 13 (story for another time). Every Girl in the neighborhood loved coming over to play with her. I really hope that Lexi will get the same enjoyment out of her Barbie Doll house.









The kitten took advantage that Lexi pulled out the kitchen table!

Oh my goodness, this is AMAZING!!!!! Sonia! Can my sister and I feature one of your/your husband's houses on our blog some time?

Wow, Sonia! Lexi is one lucky little girl (and those are some lucky Barbies too). I'm pretty sure that house has more architectural details and nicer floors than my house ;-)

Thank you so much for sharing on "A Little Birdie Told Me..." Tuesday!!!

Warmest wishes,
Jenn
